Winter tires with slats and soft rubber have been proven for a long time in the mountains and snow-covered countries, on (under  ;D ) the cars ... Why not whith bikes?

I thought, people in Quebec speak in (something like) French  ;D  ;D  ;D

I know only one tire wit M+S approval here in Europe and it is Heidenau Scout 60 but I wouldn't like to ride it even in wet asphalt...

I have been long away from Finland but as I remember on snow and ice only solution is knobby tires, hopefully with spikes.

Have put some more kils on my anakee wild this WE. Tried twisties roads, and (for instance) not so confident as with TKC70; not so precise in driving turns.
In off road condition obviously perfect; we've ride rocks (not so hard), tracks with a lot of dead leaves and melting snow; I was every time in confidence, bike stay (quietly  ;D ) every time where I want she was; and fabulous traction every time  ...  VCIF_ThumbUp
Update? Would you buy them again?

We've done 4 days/1000kms little trip in Maures massif and cost last week, with a lot of (small) passes; and I can say I'm very confident on dry /Tarmac conditions with this tire  VCIF_ThumbUp think you can ride very fast with it if you want, and put the panniers on the road  ;D
I surely give a chance a new tire (front) which will be revealed on next July; in other case, yes Anakee Wild is a great tire for what I want to do with the bike  VCIF_ThumbUp  VCIF_salut

Any body tried the new Trail Attack 3 yet ? I've been happy with the TA 2s but before replacement i thought i'd ask if any one had experienced the new ones , or is it a bit too soon for feed back on these ?
If the truth fits---wear it !!!!

Just got back from a 15,000 kilometre trek across Canada. The Mitas E07 Dakar tires really are excellent. They did everything well. The front tire is pretty much worn out, although it could be used as a road only tire. The rear still has a few thousand kilometres left in it, which is absolutely amazing.
 
I rode on pavement, gravel and muck (Trans Labrador Highway in the pouring rain) - basically all conditions and they never had an issue at all. I think the Michelin Anakee Wild is better for grip off road but only slightly and certainly doesn't last as long.


15,500 km in total for the front and still going on the rear tire...

After my Yamaha front was toasted, but rear still good my mechanic put a Bridgestone T31 and I was blown away by the lightness and precision of the steering.

So I changed my mind trying the Karoo street and will change to the Bridgestone A41, apparently both T31 and A41 were designed by the same team and same tech, so I expect really good street riding.

BTW my now really square rear and frighteningly unevenly worn front TA2, managed about 16'000 Km on them, but my mechanic made a face seeing the weird tearing and really uneven wear on the front...

I use stock pressures, tried also 2.2 on the front, but with proper road suspension adjustment, 2.0 is fine !
